I have two comments to this:

1. Natalie, if you want Preacher, I own the run. I'll bring it buy.

2. You _do not_ want to read this while expecting a baby. A prominent 
series character is from a  family that liked "To keep the bloodlines 
pure". By inbreeding. Wait till Hermie is about and wandering around.

3. Try Wicked, by Gregory Magurie. It's the life and times of the Wicked 
Witch of the West, and much reccomended.

4. Christopher Buckly. I've greatly enjoyed his books. Little Green Men, 
and Thank You For Smoking are my faves.

Elizabeth, willing to offer you sympathies
